I needed a new "walk around" lens and.....

picked up a Sigma DC 17-70mm f2.8-4 Macro OS HSM on the Bay.

I have been bidding the same price for a couple of weeks for the lens ($356.56 U.S. dollars) and won this auction today by a slight margin.
I have seen the "going" price for this lens at about $470 from the major stores and my price happened to be good today, the looser (and I hope it wasn't me) was off by 56 cents, I hope it's a good lens.

According to our lens database it's a great lens, and that seems like a great price for a new one!
